Welcome to the website of Church of the Palms, a part of the United Methodist Church, where we believe a life connected to God, and a life connected to one another, is the most meaningful life there is!
In support of Vision 2020, and expansion of our facilities, the focus of worship in February will be on our call to respond faithfully to the claim of God on our lives and opportunity to be partners with God in transforming the world. God has entrusted us - the people known as Church of the Palms - with the good news of the Gospel, this location on the map, and this time in history.
It is now our time to respond. The following messages planned for February will serve to guide us. Then on February 28 we will all offer our 3-year financial commitments for the building project to the glory of God as together we move Forward in Faith.
We’ve Come This Far

Come and enjoy some up-beat, swinging music!

Forward in Faith: Focused and Determined
2 Corinthians 5:14-15
This Sunday, February 14, we continue our “Forward in Faith” series in support of our capital campaign (see following article.) Last week we focused on how far God has brought us as Church of the Palms because of the faith of those early charter members, who 15 years ago dreamed big dreams and trusted so fully in God.
This week we look at how our love of God is the motivating, focusing, driving force behind everything we do, from the care of one another to reaching across the world. Our love of God and love of neighbor is central to who we are and what we believe God is calling us to do as we look toward the future. Now is our time to trust God as God has entrusted us, as a Church, with this location on the map, this time in history, and the Good News of the Gospel!
Come worship with us this Sunday, as we give praise and honor to our great God!
Focused and Determined
